Need a centerstand that fits my tandem
On my second tandem now. The first one was too tall for my stoker and we will be selling it.
I bought an Esge double legged kickstand a few months back and it would not fit my Trek T100. There was not enough clearance between the stand's hinge and the stoker's left chainwheel.
The new one is a Diamondback Wildwood. Not as nice a bike, but it fits her and the price was only $150. Still a decent entry level LBS quality machine (Aside from the loud paint scheme). The Esge stand has the same problem on the new bike! Not enough room behind the BB and side to side between the stoker's chainwheels. I'm sure I'm not the only one to encounter this issue. Can anyone recommend a stand that will fit? I am aware of the carbon stand that folds up and carries in a mount next to the bottle cage, but I'd like something that is attached if it is possible to find one.
